Overview

About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Imagine an early morning walk along a deserted beach. A lazy afternoon spent napping in a hammock shaded by palm trees. Fishing, snorkeling, diving, and shell collecting right out your front door. Supping on fresh-from-the-sea lobster. Going to bed with windows open and falling asleep to the sound of waves gently lapping the shore.

Stella Di Mare Villa is located in a natural seaside location on more than two acres of prime oceanfront white-sand beach amidst tropical flowers and lush palm trees. Situated directly on the oceanfront with one of the world’s best coral reefs in plain view, Stella Di Mare affords excellent privacy. The Villa is within walking distance of casual and fine dining and a full service resort with a five-star PADI dive shop and excursion service.

Yes, Stella Di Mare is truly a 'star of the sea'. Imagine... Stella Di Mare is a luxurious, four bedroom, three bath, private, beachfront villa situated on the Ambergris Caye four and a half miles North of San Pedro Town. It offers memorable views, privacy, and unmatched convenience, as well as features breathtaking 360 degree ocean and lagoon views from the third floor verandah with a large palapa and hot tub. We've added a beautiful custom private pool with infinity edge that faces the ocean! And now featuring wireless internet access!

The second floor features two master suites with private baths and air conditioning plus colorful living area and walk-out verandah. On the lower level, enjoy the full kitchen with mahogany custom cabinets, breakfast bar, family room area, and walk-out verandah, plus two more bedrooms with air conditioning and one full bath. All rooms have ceiling fans. The villa is beautifully decorated with Belizean hardwoods, custom hand-painted tiles and details from around the globe, and is completely equipped. Sleeps eight.

Absolute perfection, ideal location on the island!

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to know where to start with this review, as this was truly a perfect vacation in this beautiful home! There really are no words to describe the serenity of sipping your morning cup of coffee on the front deck watching the stunning sunrises from this house. Everything from beginning to end was simply amazing.

We had a party of 6 and stayed for 8 nights. As with everyone else, we think the world of Victor and Naomi who were fantastic and truly appreciated. Victor helped with setting up several snorkeling tours, a day on the mainland with zip lining and cave tubing, and on our last night in Belize we were staying at the Princess Hotel in Belize City due to a very early flight home the next day and Victor set us up with a tour of the Belize Zoo for that day as well. Any questions or needs, he was full of information and more than happy to assist. He took care of reserving/returning the golf carts we rented (so glad we decided to rent those) and also water taxi/land taxi to and from the airport in Sanpedro. Naomi was very sweet, cleaned the home every day, and on one night cooked us the BEST dinner of the trip - it was outstanding! They were both close at hand if needed, but not overbearing in any way.

The location on the island was perfect, close to everything yet far enough from the main town area as to offer quiet peaceful serenity. The house itself was gorgeous, very roomy, beautiful furnishings, pool was wonderful and the home felt very safe (Victor and Naomi's dogs also keep an eye on things at night adding to the feeling of security). After our all day trip of zip lining and cave tubing, we came back to enjoy a soak on the hot tub on the roof (awesome!) We also did some sea kayaking, which was fun and a first for me. Sunsets on the lagoon side were incredible!

I could go on and on about how much we loved Stella Di Mare, although part of me would like to keep this secret to myself 🙂 I am already starting to plan a return trip and if Randy will have us, there is no place on the island I would rather stay. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful slice of paradise with us, we can't wait to return!

Wonderful property and even better hosts!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean, comfortable, and the property was maintained very well. Victor and Naomi were there for us for anything we needed. If you needed a trip lined up they handled it. A suggestion for dinner, done. Needed some groceries or beverages, they were on it. They also got our golf carts delivered to the house so they were ready to use when we arrived.

Perfect paradise vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Stella diMare on Ambergris Caye, Belize, was a dream come true for myself and my entire party of 8. I was very impressed with my interactions with the owner, Randy, who was prompt and professional with his communications on the phone as well as with email and sending the contract via U.S. mail. The property, listed as #54583 on VRBO.com, completely served our needs, desires, and dreams of a family vacation the end of July 2017. The caretakers, Victor and Naomi, did exactly that from the beginning of our trip to the very end. Victor was at the airport to provide transportation to the Villa. My husband and I came after the first 6 and arrived by water taxi which was a fun adventure in itself. The villa was set among beautiful coconut trees, native plums and grapes. The privacy was perfect with direct access to the beach and clear view from lounge chairs by the refreshing swimming pool. The villa was wonderfully decorated and we thoroughly enjoyed the large kitchen, where we prepared fun meals and had family meals downstairs and upstairs. Having 2 bedrooms on the first floor and 2 on the second floor provided privacy, spaciousness, as well as 3 bathrooms to spread out in. We also loved having such a variety of places to hang out – by the pool, two family rooms inside, the second floor balcony as well as the roof top with a hot tub.

I was delighted that on our first morning a local on a bicycle was selling breakfast burritos which were yummy! Then later, another local was selling fresh tuna that he’d caught that morning and it was amazing on the grill later that night. The locals were also very respectful of our privacy and would wait by the shore to see if we were interested in their wares. I really appreciated this after being bombarded in Mexico with locals buzzing around like flies. We also enjoyed walking down the beach to the Coco Cabana to get fish tacos and other goodies.

Victor and Naomi attending to our needs with care, great communication, and comfort. We had asked for 2 golf carts and they were waiting for us at the villa when we arrived. Victor also helped arranged excursions for snorkeling which made that whole process so easy so we could just relax and enjoy it all. Naomi did a beautiful job of cleaning the villa and making sure we were comfortable. We all appreciated them both so much and felt sad to leave them as much as the villa.

I give this whole experience a 5 FIVE star rating. The villa provided a totally safe,

Villa Stella DiMare

  • 4 of 5

A group of 8 friends stayed at the villa for a week in February. The accommodations were very nice and clean, and easily accessible to the beach and the bars and restaurants both in town and to the north of the villa. The food on the island was absolutely some of the best we've ever had on vacation. The snorkeling was great- from sea turtles to stingrays to nurse sharks just to name a few. A great asset to the Villa were the caretakers Victor and Noemi. They were available at all times to help with whatever you needed including arranging snorkel trips, and getting local food vendors to come right to the villa with fresh fruit, vegetables and fish. Victor was also helpful with the golf carts when there was an issue. The fact that Victor and Noemi live in their own home on the property made it extremely convenient. All in all we had a great time!

Nothing less than amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Villa Stella Di Mare in 2 years. I can't say enough about the beautiful home, property, and the wonderful caretakers, Naomi and Victor. Every piece of our experience was exactly what we hoped for. Naomi made dinner for us a couple of times and it was delicious--and kept the house extremely clean.! Victor was so kind and directed us with whatever we needed. There is a kitchen that is well stocked with cooking utensils, the pool is amazing, and the ocean is beautiful. Great food close by. We rented golf carts to get around and made many trips to town for fun and food. We highly recommend this property! Enjoy!

Caribbean home on the beach...UnBelizeable!

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to Belize 15 years ago resulted in us staying at Stella di Mare. We have tried private homes both North and South of San Pedro over the years, but Stella di Mare is our favorite! The owner has added a beautiful pool, hot tub on the roof, lots of palm trees, and a/c throughout the house. Two of the best parts of this property though, are Victor an Noemi. Victor takes care of the pool and grounds, and his wife Noemi takes care of the house. But they are much more than caretakers, they are wonderful people who care very much about Stella di Mare and the guests who stay there. Victor will hook you up with the best price on the island for golf carts, and fun excursions. If you ask nicely, Noemi will cook a wonderful dinner for you (extra charge but so worth it). We bring friends with us every year and they all love the property.
